During a Namco Bandai "fan conference" at Japan Expo (which you can watch live
right now) the publisher announced plans to release the tales "flagship" game Tales of Xillia
in the west. Namco UK's Tales account made the announcement public
. No specific date has been announced for the Western version, but the account has specifically said
the game will come to America as well as Europe.
In Japan, Tales of Xillia
was released in September 2011, as a PS3 exclusive. A sequel was already announced for that region, due this year.Update:
A press release from Namco Bandai Games America (after the break) gives a 2013 release date to the North American release.
